Hypsiboas fasciatus photographed at night on tall grass in small pond.
This is one of the many brown tree frog species in the Peruvian Amazon, formerly in the Hyla Genus and now reclassified as Hypsiboas. These seem to support the snake population as one of their staple forage items. On another hike we saw a H. fasciatus' hind end hanging out of the mouth of a tree snake. Sadly no photo!
